If ACC is engaged, driver action may be required when ACC cannot apply sufficient braking because of approaching a vehicle too rapidly.
When this condition occurs, the collision alert symbol on the HUD will flash on the windshield. Eight beeps will sound from the front.
Approaching and Following a Vehicle
The vehicle ahead indicator is in the instrument cluster and HUD display.
The vehicle ahead indicator only displays when a vehicle is detected in your vehicle's path moving in the same direction.
If this indicator is not displaying, ACC will not respond to or brake to vehicles ahead.
ACC automatically slows the vehicle down and adjusts vehicle speed to follow the vehicle in front at the selected following gap. The vehicle speed increases or decreases to follow the vehicle in front of you, but will not exceed the set speed. It may apply limited braking, if necessary.
When braking is active, the brake lamps will come on. The automatic braking may feel or sound different than if the brakes were applied manually. This is normal.
Stationary or Very Slow-Moving Objects
Warning: ACC may not detect and react to stopped or slow-moving vehicles ahead of you. For example, the system may not brake for a vehicle it has never detected moving. This can occur in stop-and-go traffic or when a vehicle suddenly appears due to a vehicle ahead changing lanes.
Your vehicle may not stop and could cause a crash. Use caution when using ACC. Your complete attention is always required while driving and you should be ready to take action and apply the brakes.
ACC Automatically Disengages
ACC may automatically disengage and the driver will need to manually apply the brakes to slow the vehicle if:
A message will appear on the DIC indicating that cruise is disengaging.
The ACC indicator will turn white when ACC is no longer active.
Notification to Resume ACC
ACC will maintain a following gap behind a detected vehicle and slow your vehicle to a stop behind that vehicle.
If the stopped vehicle ahead has driven away and ACC has not resumed, the vehicle ahead indicator will flash as a reminder to check traffic ahead before proceeding. In addition, three beeps will sound. When the vehicle ahead drives away, press RES+ or the accelerator pedal to resume cruise control. If stopped for more than two minutes or if the driver door is opened and the driver seat belt is unbuckled, ACC automatically applies the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) to hold the vehicle. The Electric Parking Brake status light will turn on. To release the EPB, press the accelerator pedal.
A DIC warning message may display indicating to shift to P (Park) before exiting the vehicle.
Warning: If ACC has stopped the vehicle, and if ACC is disengaged, turned off, or canceled, the vehicle will no longer be held at a stop. The vehicle can move. When ACC is holding the vehicle at a stop, always be prepared to manually apply the brakes.
Warning: Leaving the vehicle without placing it in P (Park) can be dangerous. Do not leave the vehicle while it is being held at a stop by ACC. Always place the vehicle in P (Park) and turn off the ignition before leaving the vehicle.
If using the accelerator pedal while ACC is active, a DIC warning message will indicate that automatic braking will not occur. ACC will resume operation when the accelerator pedal is not being pressed.
Warning: The ACC will not automatically apply the brakes if your foot is resting on the accelerator pedal.
You could crash into a vehicle ahead of you.
